Glazed Side Infills
Side Return Extensions are generally used on older Victorian/Georgian style homes where extra spaces were added to the rear of the properties as housing demands increased. The left over passage to the garden area is often an underutilised and narrow space used as storage.
By extending the rear of your property to incorporate this passage into your homes envelope you can open up your downstairs living spaces and kitchen and improve your access to the garden.
The use of glass in these small renovations is hugely important.
As you are generally extending out to meet the party wall in most terrace houses you will lose any side light you did achieve through the original wall. Here, using large glass roof over the whole area will maximise your natural light influx and create a much lighter space than you have previously.
